Bio: 

My research lies at the intersection of comparative politics and political economy. I study the politics of  providing basic goods such as water, electricity, and sanitation, and the implications this has for how socioeconomic development is understood and executed. Currently, I am exploring the politics of drinking water shortages in Karachi, Pakistan. Going forward, I am to study drinking water shortages in both the developed and developing worlds.
